Leap Orbit’s Convergent Provider Data Hub Selected by the Washington Health Benefit Exchange

Leap Orbit, the innovation partner to market-leading health data networks, announced today that has been awarded a new contract from the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, Washington’s state-based exchange. Leap Orbit’s Convergent Provider Data Hub will deliver comprehensive, up-to-date provider information to power the Exchange’s online marketplace, Washington Healthplanfinder.


“We are thrilled to be working with the Exchange team to support the one in four Washingtonians who rely on Healthplanfinder to search for, compare and enroll in affordable health and dental insurance,” said David Finney, partner and co-founder of Leap Orbit. “Accurate provider data is at the heart of the shopping experience, and Convergent will help consumers confidence in selecting the network that’s right for them.”


Convergent easily marries imperfect health plan network data files with a proprietary, nationwide set of reference data for clean, up-to-date provider data. By using exclusively modern, cloud-native components and shared reference data, Convergent delivers powerful provider data tools much more affordably than legacy provider data management systems.


In addition to state-based insurance exchanges, Convergent also supports the needs of carriers, government agencies and provider organizations. Beyond the core cloud-based Provider Data Hub, the Convergent platform includes a growing set of modules to support specific business challenges. These include:

  • A mobile-friendly provider search,

  • Network data validation and enrichment,

  • Delegated roster management,

  • Credentialing workflow management,

  • FHIR 4.0.1-conformant provider directory API, and

  • Reporting and analytics.

Convergent also supports integration with industry-leading, third-party components such as CAQH ProView, DocuSign Contract Lifecycle Management, Monday.com CRM and Microsoft PowerBI.
